At Apple’s spring 2021 event, the company announced a new color for the iPhone 12. You can now get the latest iPhone in purple.
Keep reading to find out all the details about this latest iPhone edition.
Which iPhone Models Come in Purple?
If you’re looking to grab the latest iPhone in the purple color that was just announced, you’re probably wondering which iPhone models are available with this look.
As it turns out, you’ll be able to get your hands on either an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Mini in this lovely light purple.
Unfortunately, the iPhone 12 Pro line isn’t available in purple. The Pro models arrived in different colors from the iPhone 12 and 12 Mini when they first launched in 2020. Thus, it’s not too much of a surprise that Apple kept the new color exclusively for the more colorful models.
It also makes sense that the new color is only an option for the lower-priced models, because they’ve generally been selling better. While the iPhone 12 Mini hasn’t done well so far, the iPhone 12 has been a strong-selling device for Apple. Adding the new visual option for your best-selling device is good business, of course.
The Purple iPhone 12’s Price
You definitely don’t want to have to pay more money to get an iPhone in the color that you want. After all, it’s exactly the same device aside from the looks.
Thankfully, this isn’t a worry. It’s the exact same price to buy an iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Mini in the new purple color as it is to buy either device in any other color.
As of this writing, the price sits firmly, starting at for $ 699 for the iPhone 12 Mini, and $ 799 for the larger iPhone 12.
Availability and Release of the Purple iPhone 12
As is the usual case with events and launches, the new color devices aren’t available for order right away.
If you’re looking to get your hands on one of the new purple iPhone 12 models, pre-ordering for these devices starts on Friday, April 23. If you’re impatient, you’ll be saddened to know that April 30 is the official launch date.
If you can’t wait that long for a new Apple package to show up, there are some new cases available immediately for purchase. These include new leather MagSafe cases for the iPhone.
The purple devices are available in all countries that you can normally buy an iPhone in; there are no frustrating geographical restrictions.
Pre-Ordering a Purple iPhone
If you’re looking to pick up one of these new purple iPhones, then you’ve probably already marked the calendar for Friday. The best way to do this is from the Apple Store app on iOS devices, or using the Apple website.
In the past, people have reported that the Apple Store app updates slightly before the website, but that’s not official.
